Customer Reviews for Nolan N87 Rapid N-Com - Flat Lava Grey / Red

Nolan N87 Rapid N-Com - Flat Lava Grey / Red
January 29, 2019

Very impressed

I bought this after trying the IS-17 (came up too small) and the Shark S900 (came up too big) in medium. The matt finish is really nice, as is the colour scheme. The helmet is snug and fit me much better than the other two. The chin strap works really well too. I can't really comment on the noise, it is less than the training school helmet but i have no other reference frame. I've just a few dual carriageways and there is noise but i still won't bother with ear plugs. The vents seem to work well but its 0 degrees at the moment so they were shut most of the time. I used the built in sunglasses, as someone who never wear sunglasses I was pleasantly surprised. Think of them more a filter than traditional sunglasses, they worked well without impeding vision.

Really great lid

Really comfy to wear, light, great field of view, fits really well (m for me), and not too loud. And lots of gadgets to buy and fit after if you fancy!

Fits the bill

Not a seasoned biker so nothing to compare it to but it fits my fat head comfortably, needed the xxl as the xl was too snug. Forget you have it on after a while. Looks good too and matched the rest of my kit perfectly.

Good Helmet

Good well fitting helmet for my rounder large head. XL was a perfect fit. Viewing angle is amazing, you have some wind noise but not overly bad. I ride a naked bike so its expected. Very pleased.

Amazing value for money

A very comfortable helmet, could ride more than 2 hours on the first try without pain. Very good optics with no distortion and very wide view. It's lightweight and very silent compared to my other helmets (Shoei, Caberg, and LS2). Aerodynamics are very good with no noticeable drag. Definitely recommend this helmet, makes justice to all the awards it won.

Good helmet for the price tag

Very comfortable fit and good vision from this helmet. It is a little noisy but at this price you can't moan. Had no problems so far, good quality lid would recommend.

Definitely recommend it

My first helmet from Nolan and definitely not the last. Bought it for every day use. It's been 4 weeks since received it and could find any fault on it. Great for commuting and for longer rides too. The wide visor felt so great. Perfect size (57-58). Good ventilation.

Love the style

Very light comfortable helmet. Sun visor is the best I have had. Doesn't have a premium feel about it. Very noisy above 40mph but fine for commuting and can always add ear plugs. Overall happy with the helmet. Good price for what you are getting. Fits well as I have a massive head.

Very comfy

Not too tight on the cheeks compared to my Scorpion Exo. Quick release chin strap and a Pinlock visor fitted. Wide visor vision. Recommended.

Decent lid

Used this only a few times so far but seems good, reasonably quiet and comfortable. Sun visor becoming standard now but still a good feature. I would say the sizing is a bit off, I always wear an M but had to go L for this and as usual SBS customer service was spot on.

Great companies are born out of great passions. Nolan has always meant "passion for two wheels". The history of Nolan began in 1972 when Lander Nocchi, an entrepreneur in the motorbike and car accessories sector, decided to produce motorcycle helmets that could be lighter and more affordable than those on the market at the time. He purchased, from a company in the United States, an innovative plastic material, Lexan, which was light and versatile, and started producing polycarbonate helmets. In the following 37 years, other important ideas have been put into production, and they proved to be well known and highly valued products by thousands of customers in more than 70 countries around the globe.
